Where are the Lee's?

[Google killed this API feature in 2013 so the site no longer exists]

wherearethelees.com was a creation for Mother’s Day between Ted and I. So where did the idea come from?

Harry Potter, of course. The Weasley’s had a clock (Whereabouts Clock) that told them where everyone in the family was at all times.

Short of being magical, we created this because my Mom doesn’t yet own a cell phone.

Right now it’s a mash-up of Google’s Map API and Twitter’s API.

A “DINNER!” button that allows my Mom to press a button that sends a text to all our phones may be in the pipes for the near future.
